Contest: Made With Iconfinder

Every day we see you and your fellow designers create amazing work with icons from Iconfinder. To celebrate the work you do, we have decided to award the top talent with some fine prizes and some good exposure. This is a chance for you as a designer to showcase your skills and win awesome prizes.

What qualifies as “made with Iconfinder”?

“Made with Iconfinder” means that your design has to use one or more icons available from Iconfinder.

Your creation can be pretty much any creative work of art you have done. Websites, apps, videos, presentations or brochures – all are welcome!

When evaluating the projects, the judges will be looking at:

  • The overall execution of you project
  • How well icons were integrated into the design
  • Bonus for creative use of icons.

Meet the judges

We gathered a group of talented designers who all work professionally with icons, but also design websites and apps themselves, to pick the best of the best:

How to present your work

As a designer you know that presentation matters. So, just like when presenting your work to your boss or a client, you should put a bit of effort in presenting your project for the judges.

There is no best way to present your project, but think about how it can be at it’s best for that crucial first impression.
